Hymn: TLH 377, st. 1,6,7: Salvation unto us has Come

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Salvation unto us has come 
By God’s free grace and favor; 
Good works cannot avert our doom, 
They help and save us never. 
Faith looks to Jesus Christ alone, 
Who did for all the world atone; 
He is our one Redeemer. 

6. Since Christ hath full atonement made 
And brought to us salvation, 
Each Christian therefore may be glad 
And build on this foundation. 
Thy grace alone, dear Lord, I plead, 
Thy death is now my life indeed, 
For Thou hast paid my ransom. 

7. Let me not doubt, but trust in Thee, 
Thy Word cannot be broken; 
Thy call rings out, “Come unto Me!” 
No falsehood hast Thou spoken. 
Baptized into Thy precious name, 
My faith cannot be put to shame, 
And I shall never perish.
